1848 Quarter Eagle up for Auction

Feb 26, 2006 | Auctions, Coins, Collectibles | 0 comments

Heritage Auction Galleries is holding an auction next week of the The Larj Collection in Palm Beach:

“Heritage Auction Galleries is proud to feature The Larj Collection in our upcoming Signature Auction, to be held March 2 & 3 at the Palm Beach Convention Center, 650 Okeechobee Boulevard at Florida Avenue, West Palm Beach, Florida.

Among the many great numismatic treasures in this collection is the finest-known proof 1848 Quarter Eagle, graded PR64 by PCGS. When David Akers cataloged this coin as part of the Pittman Collection, he noted that only three positively identified proofs were known to him. In addition to the present coin, he specifically identified the Smithsonian example, and the Woodin-Boyd specimen, later appearing for sale as lot 2669 in Superior’s sale of February 1991. A few other examples have been reported over the years, but most such reports were the result of confused or incorrect pedigrees.”
